icloud backup

Post by TwistedGenetics » Wed Nov 07, 2018 11:21 pm


I currently have Dropbox which I store all my samples and project files. In the past i have had problems with Ableton crashing due to access rights over files between ableton and dropbox. They were both wanting to do things with the files at the same time. I now just turn dropbox sync on when i need it so this isn't a problem.

I'm thinking of swapping over to icloud as i already have it for my phone backups etc, its a lot cheaper for more space. I understand that if you stop it syncing it removes the files from your pc. Is there a way around this so i can stop it accessing files wile i produce?

i don't like iCloud for cloud storage, as it provides very little transparency or control.
